“With children going back to school, now is the perfect time to schedule a flu shot as well as other needed routine vaccines,” said Karen Staniforth, chief pharmacy officer at Rite Aid. “More than ever, our customers want to keep themselves and their families healthy – including protecting against flu, COVID-19 and other diseases – and we are committed to providing them with convenient access to the immunizations they need.”

This year, Rite Aid’s flu vaccinations include:

  • Quadrivalent flu vaccine, which provides protection against four strains of the flu: the influenza A H3N2 virus, the influenza A H1N1 virus and two strains of influenza B virus
  • FLUAD, a quadrivalent vaccine that helps create a stronger immune response to vaccination, approved for people 65 and older
  • Fluzone HD, a high-dosage quadrivalent vaccine for patients 65 and older
  • Flumist, a nasal spray flu vaccine, which is in limited supply at all locations

Rite Aid and Bartell Drugs also offer COVID-19 and other routine vaccinations at all locations, helping customers and families stay up to date on vaccines that provide critical protection against certain diseases, some of which are required for certain ages, activities or for overseas travel.

To help customers assess their needs for routine immunizations, Rite Aid offers an Immunization Evaluation Questionnaire on its website. The questionnaire guides customers to ensure they are up to date with all necessary immunizations based on their age, conditions, or occupation.

Rite Aid and Bartell’s pharmacists can immunize adults and children three years of age and older. To schedule an appointment for a flu vaccine or other immunizations, Rite Aid customers can use the online scheduling tool at riteaid.com. Bartell Drugs customers can use the online scheduling tool linked here. All locations are currently accepting walk-ins.
